Being sleepy behind the wheel is almost as bad as drinking and driving, suggests a new study from France.
The study, published as a letter in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that drivers who were either drunk or sleepy were at least twice as likely to be responsible for a vehicle accident compared to their well-rested or sober counterparts.
One way for people to reduce their accident risk is to take a nap before they hit the road. If you drink coffee, it will take some time to take effect and the coffee’s effectiveness can wear off over time.[related_posts limit=”5″]
